Serious Flooding Hit VRA Resettlement Community
Residents have subsequently accused the Volta River Authority Resettlement Fund of failure to attend to their needs.
Residents in Mpakadan Quarters, a Volta River Authority (VRA) Resettlement community in the Asuogyaman District in the Eastern Region of Ghana are being threatened by continuous flooding in the community due to collapsed drainage facilities and inadequate drainage to direct water into nearby streams.
The community is flooded by the slightest rainfall and collapsing many of their buildings on daily basis.
A collapsed building killed a student about six years ago, according to residents.
Some of them have deserted the community for safety, due to the routine floods and erosion which continue to threaten the lives of the community.
The unmitigated erosion and floods have destroyed roads and streets in the community making it difficult for vehicles to ply while making lives unbearable for residents especially pregnant women and those sick patients.
The community is gradually being washed away by the floods hence residents are appealing to the government to immediately intervene.
